I have medium to long hair which I dye brown. I love the silver coming in at the roots and would like to let it grow out. How can I do this without looking like a nut for a year.  I don't want to chop it all off, or do I have to?  Has anyone ever bleached it platinum while waiting, then it will blend?

any input please?

Hey Collywolly,
What color is your natural color,besides the silver? If its alot of silver, you could just let it grow and gradually trim the bottom off. Will there be a huge difference when it starts comming in? I would never dye
It platinum, its would kill your hair. If it were me
I would just let it grow, and not care what others think. But thats me! Hopefully someone else will read this and chime in a few ideas.

Well I'm doing what you suggest and am just letting the white come through naturally.   The white is about five inches long and the old dyed brown stuff is about 6 inches long.  Sounds awful and in some lights it looks awful as well.  But a lot of the time it looks fairly ok and I'm feeling strong enough to brazen it out.  I think in a few more months I will be really glad that I did.  I've been thinking really hard about hair color this year and have come to the conclusion that we all let fashion and what other people think worry us too much.  Do whatever you want to do!!

Thanks- I think I'll get several inches cut off and I'll be half way there!
Good Luck with yours!

As someone with premature gray hair, I was always being urged to color it.  At one point I tried a very light blonde.  I didn't especially like the color, and I REALLY didn't like how my hair felt after all that processing.  So I started with getting low lights, going a little darker each time and eventually eliminating the highlights.  When it was able to grow out without my looking like a bomb popsicle, I let it grow until the non-colored part was about two inches long.  Then I cut it all off in a supershort style. 

I haven't colored my hair in about three years, and I am much happier. 

In the end, we remember not the voices of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

Im in the same dilemma, I am 44 and look a lot younger. I have been colouring my longish hair for a few years but my naturally curly hair is getting fried by it. My choice is fried coloured hair or healthy curly greying hair. The problem is most of my grey is around the front and is really aging. I wish there was a product that would just soften up the grey and blend in more. I have a dark blonde colour (hairdresser speak) and the greys just scream out! I tried a non damaging semi perm colour that washes out over 6 weeks but it didnt take on the grey.

I think the grey looks more aging because it contrasts with the dyed hair.  If you can bear to let it just grow out, I think you might find it is less aging.  That's what happened to me anyway.  Good luck.

I think you need original hair color. It is dye your hair maturely. You can make your hair as so as you want.
